Physical Description of Persona:
Traharn is of average height and underweight. He has dark brown hair with touch of grey and brown eyes. With shallow cheeks, frown lines and haunted, sad look in his eyes, he looks decades older than he actually is. He was once muscular man, now his skin sags and his shoulders are hunched. He has deft hands, scarred by his craft. He has large Thread score-scar on his back.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Traharn has been a broken man ever since his dragon died. Sad and anguished, only thing that keeps him from following his lifemate is his little firelizard and the small joy he gets from his craft. His sister and her children are the third support that keeps him breaking up completely. He enjoys telling wild, exaggerated stories to his nephews and nieces about his Turns as dragonrider. Even when talking about Edmyth hurts. Itís hardly surprise that he drinks heavily. He is very skilled saddlemaker when heís not on a drinking binge. Every saddle he makes is beautiful and full of small, elegant details and decorations.

History of Persona:
Traharn was born in Emerald Falls hold, as the third child of a cotholder Harner and his wife Travila. He had pretty normal childhood. At the age of twelve, he apprenticed to the tannercraft. When he was sixteen, he was Searched. The Pernís queens had started out to lay massive clutches. After a Turn in Weyr, Traharn Impressed brown Edmyth, becoming Tíharn. Tíharn had no troubles adjusting to dragonriderís life. He was friendly, jovial fellow who got well along with his Wingmates. All was well in his life and then Pass begun. The first Turn of the Pass went well for Tíharn and Edmyth. They were even considered to Wingsecondís position. Then, during the Turn 02, they got badly Scored. So badly that Edmyth did not survive and Tíharn only barely. It took him almost full Turn to recover to the point he was able to return to Emerald Falls Hold. Now Traharn again, he dedicated to his craft, finding it possible to forget Edmyth when he concentrated to his work deeply enough. Of course, then something happened to remind him of his loss and he went to drinking again. He now lives in combined cot/workshop near his sister Hanila and her family. She keeps a sharp eye on him and he works when he can and drinks when he canít work.
